My blogger friends post ,made me look for my successes in my indoor plant world.
I used to kill many plants before either water them too much or not enough.
I seem to have learned a bit. Now I am more successful.
I do love my indoor plants and enjoy seeing them grow.
See how this plant grew since January
My Plumeria indoors loves the window:
My little fig tree is adding more
and another ficus plant has grown more than 10 cm.
I am overjoyed with my greenery
and enjoy every single leaf.
Ivy has grown over,
withered and left a
heart shape on the building.
Seen near the Thames in Greenwich.
Spread love wherever you can.
Time for something new:
I tried the other day to paint a stone.
It was a very porous stone.
This is my result.
It was rather hard, I’m not so good in drawing so this will be my only one.
It looks nice in the garden, I varnished it to weatherproof it.
I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought,
so I’ll stick to the crafts I do better and enjoy more.
Like knitting a little fragrance pouch for example.
It is good to try different crafts out.
One way to find out what you truly enjoy.
“Give yourself freedom to try out new things.
Don’t be so set on your ways that you can’t grow.”
While sorting I find all different things.
Using some imagination I can make something new out of it.
I had a small tray which had once candles on it.
The candles are gone, the tray remained.
The wonderful shells, received from my sister from an exotic holiday, I had displayed on a plate.
My idea was to make a wall hanging out of it.
So I filled the tray with PVA glue,
arranged the shells as I liked, then carefully sprinkled sand in between.
Once this was dry, I glued the last shells on the top.
Now all dry and I have a new picture.
It will go nicely in the bathroom and gives this holiday feeling.
When you find odd bits and bobs why not
recycle and make something new out of it.
It is fun to create your own ideas.
I saw this beautiful crocheted skirt on Yochet’s blog here.
A great skirt, I love knitwear, so there was my project.
Just finished it and I am so happy with it.
Look for yourself.
I really enjoy wearing it.
Thank you Yochet for letting me know how to do it.
Dramatic colours on my way to work in the sky
with these amazing sunrises.
Another day more like fire
It is great to start the day with natures’s beauty.
It is really getting colder as Winter approaches.
That is when the animal in me comes out.
See for yourself…
Have a great and warm weekend!
Dear wonderful Reader,
in between my naps a quick post.
I found new places for excellent cat naps.
First, a wonderful basket, I jumped in as soon it was empty.
Second , my mum’s drawer on her Computer desk.
I thought I better look up for a proper picture.
otherwise I just relax on the bin, the sun makes it warm.
All three really comfy places.
Try them out in your house, dear fellow feline friends.
Psst… don’t tell your owner you got the tips from me.
Have a purrfect nap on your favourite place.
Liz from Leaping life blog inspired me with her Kitchen Capers.
Liz made her own loaf of bread.
I was itching to make my own bread too.
Looking up James Morton on you tube
I found an easy recipe – a mug bread.
The result was fantastic,
and half the bread was gone within minutes.
Thank you Liz for your yummy post,
I will certainly do it for next weekend again
as we were all so impressed.
My Primula was very busy making more flowers.
Look at the difference from my last post here.
This time I made a wind chime
with odd leftover beads
and a twig.
It came out so nice, I did not put it in the garden but hung it in the front room as Art.
